My history teacher taught math one year against his wishes.  We didn't learn any math that year, but knew everything about who invented that math formula.  I guess that was his way of protesting.

Pythagorean?

Pythagoras was a weird dude. Ever read about him? He had a fear of beans, and the Pythagoreans actually kicked someone off their island because he showed that numbers weren't the nice, neat  things that the Pythagoreans thought they were. Or something like that.

Oh yes, western thought is very strange indeed - a lot of reincarnation myths which led to the  Hellenisation [sic] of the second temple period Jews. America is based on these Greco Roman ideals - but people still try to say it was based on Judeo- Christian ideals. The philosophers put a good “greecing” on the Hebrew Scriptures.

I just have to ask--what government standardized tests were your students taking? I mean if you live in Texas--in 8th grade there are 4 tests--Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies (usually more history than actual government)

Then in high school, standardized testing consists of English 1, English 2, Algebra, Biology, and United States History--Unless your school gave a special standardized test for government, like maybe their own EOC--there hasn't been a standardized government test in Texas in the last 25 years that I have taught here. There was of course that 3 year hiatus in Colorado from 2010-1013, and even they didn't have a standardized government test. 

Or I could be misinterpreting what you said--meaning your students did well on standardized tests given by the state? 

If so, I am sorry for misinterpreting. LOL

It is.  It really really is. 

The Color of Crime, a booklet by white separatist Jared Taylor, uses faulty analysis in its claims that whites are overwhelmingly victimized by blacks.

Around the nation, white supremacists and their fellow travelers are brandishing copies of a 1999 booklet that purports to show that whites have every reason to be terrified of blacks. For people from former Klansman David Duke to an array of neo-Confederates, The Color of Crime: Race, Crime and Violence in America has become a kind of Bible that shows them that they were right all along.

Sponsored by the New Century Foundation, an organ of white separatist author Jared Taylor, The Color of Crime is being circulated in hard copy and via the Web site of Taylor's magazine American Renaissance.

So, you used your classroom to indoctrinate students with conservative dogma? Funny, I have been doing the opposite for 30 years, teaching them to think for themselves! 😆

So they come to the realization that you’re a liberal but? At least you’re preparing the kids for the real world.

No 'but' about it, I will say, but I think for a spelling champion and critic like yourself, who touts a high IQ, you may have misspelled a four letter word.
